The son of celebrated Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré, Vieux Farka Touré was actually discouraged from pursing a career in music by his father. But the younger Touré's passion and talent were too strong to ignore, and he eventually followed in his father's footsteps and has come to be known as one of the brightest contemporary stars to recently emerge from the African continent. This track from Vieux Farka Touré's live album sees the rising Malian star showing off his formidable electric guitar wizardry.
